Well, KMail supports OpenPGP and S/MIME by default (assuming all of
the dependency libraries and such are installed),

For Thunderbird, there's the Enigmail extension that I use, and it
works very well.

I won't even go into pine/mutt and gpg, as I don't imagine you're
interested :)

I have no idea if/how/under what conditions Outlook and friends
will do encryption/decryption, but I seem to recall that the
gnupg guys have a windows port of gpgme (gpg made easy), so there
is probably some windows-specific software to take advantage of
that.
